Custom orthotics are specific, prescription inserts customized to your feet and your conditions. They usually have a firm bottom shell, to achieve body support, and a softer topcover for cushion and shock absorption. Orthotics should be comfortable for wear! They are also hidden in shoes, so nobody even knows you are wearing them. Beware of imitations that are not custom made, as they are just off-the-shelf inserts. Also, beware of how they are made. Acceptable techniques are plaster casting, foam box impression casting, and the latest digital casting or 3D casting. Some casting is static (you stand or sit while an impression of your feet is obtained), but the most accurate is dynamic casting (you walk while pressure readings and impressions are obtained so that the doctor has more information on what your feet are doing while you walk)...most of us can't afford to go through life standing still, right? So I believe in dynamic digital casting! A properly and professionally made orthotic is an important solution
